Hampton Plantation State Historic Site


Virtual Exhibits

The South Carolina State Park Service has operated Hampton Plantation State Historic Site since 1971. However, for approximately 250 years prior to its purchase by the state, it was a productive rice plantation. Multiple generations lived at Hampton, both wealthy white planter families as well as free and enslaved black families. The Horrys and Rutledges lived alongside hundreds of enslaved individuals, including Harry, Isaac, Daphne, Patty, and Grace. After the Civil War, free African-American farmers like Steve Boykin and Prince and Sue Alston continued to work and live at Hampton until the last Rutledge family member moved away in the 1970s.

Current virtual exhibits include a digital house tour and grounds tour. These tours tell the stories of the many individuals, free and enslaved, who lived and worked at the plantation throughout its history. Click the links below to learn about their lives and the landscape of the Hampton grounds.
